This morning while I wait for my bride to get ready for a road trip I am reading e-mails and have some really great ones to share with you. My favorite quote is by Adlai Stevenson, the last great Governor of  Illinois. Aesop wins the most lasting quote award, true in BC and still true today.

 If God wanted us to vote, he would have given us candidates.
